What is better than peanut butter? Mixing it with Caramel!! Seriously my favourite sweet. So, this pie is just awesome! My variation on this is using diary free (except for butter) and gluten free products. If you don’t need to be dairy and gluten free, just swap out the coconut cream for normal cream and also the sweeten condensed coconut milk for normal sweeten condensed milk.
